Heart typically associate with a red color and Valentines day, however, my inspiration was the current autumn/winter season. The colors outside and rising Christmas spirit have dictated me a color of a string.
- a piece of wood
- string – a color you like
- white paper to draw a heart – or a pattern (click to print)
- a box of nails
Step 1. Print a pattern
Print your string art pattern and cut it off.
Step 2. Draw a heart
Place your heart on a piece of wood and draw a heart.
Step 3. Add the nails
Time to get the hammer out. Nail around the entire outline of the heart. I spaced my nails about an inch apart. The nails should all be the same height.
Step 4. Define your pattern with string
Now is a fun part. Get your string and tie a knot around the head of your first nail in the bottom. Then, wrap the string around each set of two nails two times until you complete the circle.
Step 5. Criss-cross the string
Wrap back and forth to fill the interior of the heart. There is no particular order for this.
Step 6. Tie a final knot
Use your scissors to carefully cut the excess string and tie a final knot on the nail in a bottom.
It is a beautiful DIY string art heart for your home decor or an original homemade gift.
